EA Announces Origin Access Premier on PC; Coming Later This Summer

Origin Access Premier was announced during EA Play 2018 at E3 today.

2017's Madden 18 also skipped Nintendo Switch, but another EA Sports game-FIFA 18-came to the hybrid console that year. This functions the same as Xbox's Game Pass version that adds all first-party exclusives to the Game Pass for players to return to so long as they keep their subscription intact. That has been a constant complaint by gamers, in fact, and something Electronic Arts has made a decision to address today.

Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson took the stage at EA Play 2018 to announce Origin Access Premier. It'll also include all the titles from the existent Origin Access tier. For the first time in a subscription, you're getting new games like Madden NFL 19, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Battlefield V and Anthem, and full access to more than 100 games from EA and other publishers with a single membership. According to the press release sent out by the publisher just minutes ago, the subscription will cost $99.99 per year or $14.99 monthly. In India, Origin Access Premier price is Rs. 999 a month and Rs. 6,499 per year.

10 percent discount in the Origin Store on full games, pre-orders, expansions, Federation Internationale de Football Association points, and more. New subscribers who aren't now a member of an Origin Access plan will be able to get a seven day trial.

To this day, Origin Access has existed to provide access to older games in the PC gaming vault from Electronic Arts. The subscription plan itself won't actually start until this coming summer, however.
